Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Tull and the Dead

Is there a show with the Dead playing with a flute player?
I'm listening to a little Jethro Tull right now and was thinking that Ian Anderson would have been a grate special guest at a show. I think he would have fit in well with the Boys during a little DS improv. Give a listen to Terrapin and then Thick As a Brick, there are a few similarities to be had. Mostly the odd time signatures and progressive natures of the pieces.

How many people here have lost count of the times they heard, "Jethro Tull, I love that guy?"

I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard Ian referred to as Jethro Tull or the band referred to as "him."

I guess I'm just restating the same thing, am I not? What a dipshit (me, that is).

The Dead played with a flute player at the Human Be-In. Only problem is, he's not in tune with the band. Charles Lloyd.

Tull was my band before I got to college in 77' and saw my first Dead show! I saw those guys every year for probably 10 years.

I agree Ian would have been a fine insert to a DS jam or many other tunes.

Could you see Jerry sittin in with them on Locamotive Breath!

I found this a while back because I couldn't believe they played there (I currently live one mile away the site). Its actually not a theater but where UDUB has their crew races. Its puny small and I honestly can not believe they fit there at this point of their career.

Anyways, this show is very interesting at points and has many highlights. The Casey Jones is one of the first ever and has a totally different intro, you can literately hear the band shaking the rust and cockroaches off the song (alot of miscues and mistakes but I love it anyways). It's a Casey Jones with T.C. still in the band and you gotta love that. I personally love this old intro and how they used jam on it. Maybe just because it's different that I like so much.

Minglewood, China Cat and Doin That Rag has some of flute in it. This is what you are looking for my friend if you want to hear the flute and the Grateful Dead together. However, I am not saying the flute player sounds good with them but he is there. I have to say the flute just doesn't work with this band but that's MHO. Some say it's Charles Lloyd but they could be just saying that because he played with them at the Be-In. Who knows??

For you Pig fans this has a excellent Big Boss Man.

I was a pretty big Tull fan back in high school, right at the end of their peak years and saw them on the Songs From The Wood tour (great show!) and again on the Bursting Out tour. IMO, Thick As A Brick is a "classic rock" must-have album. I still get a lot of enjoyment out of listening to it.
